You Just Think of This NOW??

Having lunch the other day.....

Cole: "Mom, did we get these at the doctor?"
Me: "Did we get what from the doctor?"
Cole, waving his fork in the air and aiming it at the twins: "Ya know, these babies! Did we get them at the doctor's?"
Me: "Yes, mommy's doctor sort of gave them to us, didn't he? Are you glad about that?"
A begrudging Cole: "Yeahhhhh......."

Seriously? The babies are almost a year old and he just now starts talking about where we got them? Well, needless to say, I'm very grateful that saying we got them from the doctor is an answer that suffices for now! I wonder what kind of questions will come when he's a year older....

A Cleaning Dream!

Yesterday evening the sun was shining through our kitchen window. Cole and I had been upstairs watching a movie together when he ran downstairs to see if Jake would take him outside. The next thing I heard was Cole yelling, "LOOK!! FIREFLIES!" We couldn't figure out what he was talking about, until I walked downstairs and saw his "fireflies" - or, um, little "dusties" that were floating in the sunshine. I would normally see those and think to myself, "Ugh, now I have to clean some more." But from now on, I will think, fireflies, and will be more incline to let them be. So if you come to our home and see our collection of fireflies, just know how privileged you really are. And hey! If it keeps the little guy happy, who am I to go and ruin his fun?
